Hello! I'm Rachel and I am a documentary style wedding photographer based in Accrington, Lancashire. I cover weddings across Lancashire, Manchester and Cheshire and the Lake District. I have a very important job. I tell the story of people's wedding days through my images. Ok, I know there are more important jobs out there - but I think mine is pretty special. I want my customers to look back at their wedding images and relive the nerves, the joy, the anticipation, the laughter, the tears and of course the dance floor antics. I'm here to tell the story of your day through beautiful and authentic images.
"Rachel - we can't stop looking at the pictures! They are absolutely beautiful. You captured moments I wasn't even aware of and the emotion and love in the photos is captivating. I remember when we met you and we told you about the love we had for the city and how much it meant to us and we both feel like you just got it. You were so helpful on the day and we had so much faith that the pictures would be perfect and they are!" Bea and Dan. Manchester Town Hall.
“…awesome images captured by a fantastic wedding photographer who we both thoroughly recommend. We are both thrilled with all the images. Thank you soooo much.” – Dan and Claire, Stirk House Hotel.
I am one very lucky wedding photographer. I get to spend my ‘working’ days with couples on the happiest day of their lives. I’m super lucky to be able to work with amazing couples who are planning their weddings and doing things their own way. I love shooting weddings where the couple have expressed their personalities and have chosen fun and laughter over tradition. I get slightly over-enthusiastic about the details of your day, I’ll always be happy to chat flowers, stationary and table decorations. I also get genuinely caught up in all the fun and emotion that a wedding brings. It’s not unusual to spot me getting a bit choked up during the speeches or when Dad sees his daughter in the dress for the first time.
My style of photography blends authentic documentary images, with fine art styled details and creative and relaxed portraiture. For most of your day I’ll blend into the background, mingling with guests, anticipating those special moments and capturing some awesome real images of what’s going on. I'll always take some time to capture all those details you've spent time planning - I know how much work went into those choices! At some point in the day I’ll whisk you both off for a short time. We’ll take a stroll around your venue and I’ll capture some beautiful and relaxed images of the the two of you, newlyweds, on the first day of your new adventure. Then I’ll spend the rest of the day just capturing the joy for you enjoy again and again.
